As is known to all, knowledge is power, which can be acquired from lots of sources. These involve books and practical experience, and every has its own strength. The knowledge we gain from books makes us to learn about things that we have no chance to undergo in daily life.
We can study all the places around the world and learn from people we will never meet in our lifetime, only by reading about them in works. We can also foster our thought mode and learn how to see and explain the world around us in diverse ways. What’s more, we can learn from the past by reading meaningful books. Thus, we won’t repeat the errors of others and can gather valuable experience. On the other hand, hands-on experience can render us more available knowledge.
As a matter of fact, I deem that making errors is the best method to learn. In addition, if we want to get some new progress, it is essential to go into action. At last, one can put the thoughts and insights obtained through learning books into practical experience, letting an already meaningful experience more practical. However, if it is not put into use, knowledge remains theoretical and useless. That is why I’m convinced that knowledge gained from practical experience is more significant than that obtained from reading books.
We often keep hearing such a saying, “Never give up.” It can be an inspiring term and expression of determination. One who trust it will try to reach his aim no matter how many times he fails. As for me, determining to succeed is a valuable quality to own. Consequently, I am convinced that we should never give up halfway.
One reason is that provided that we abandon too easily, we could hardly realize anything. It is usual for us to fail in our first attempt at something new, so we shouldn’t feel depressed and should try once more. In addition, if we always give up easily when we fail, we will not be able to obtain new skills . Another reason we should never abandon is that we can learn a lesson from our errors. If we do not try once again, the lesson we have gotten is squandered. At last, we should never give up in that as we try our best to realize our goals, we are becoming more confident, and this confidence can grant us succeed in other fields of daily life.
In a word, it is essential that we do not give up when struggling for our targets. Whether we succeed at last or not, we will learn something, and what we know will help us to become better, more confident. Furthermore, if we give up halfway, we have no opportunities of achieving our goals, but if we keep trying, there is always a chance that we will succeed in the future.
